Tracy had been at the house of a Mrs
(Gerald, near Trenton, for live hours
Fifty armed men at once hastoned t<
the scene. When they reached the
place they scattered and took positionm
so they could watch the house to the
best advantage.
The peculiar actions of Mrs. Gerald
convinced them that Tracy was still in
the house. On the arrival of Sheriff
Cudihce the posso closed in on the
house, only to learn frot Mrs. Gera:d
that Tracy had given them the slip.
lie had left the house by a rear door
t,en minutes previous, while the posse
were taking up their positions to watI
the place, hid for a few minutes in
some of the bushes, and then quietly
slipped away through the woods towar<l
The wonderful nerve of the convict
was never more f'illy oxemphlied than
in this instance. in the back yard of
the Gerald home was found Anderson,
the man whom Tracy had kept a
prisoner from the time lie left Port
Ps al ison, tied to i tree. Tracy had
tico Anderson to the tree while the
posse were in full view of the house
before makmig his escape. The blood
hounds were let loose on his trail and
are reported to be oinly a few minutes
behind himl.
Fully a thousand armed men are
now engaged in the pursuit, including
i posse which hia, taken the train for
Palmer to intercept, Tracy im his flight
toward Cedar mountain. Some time
between Saturday night and Monday
night Tracy c une to Seattle. The
Johnison boat, in which lie left Port
AMadison, accompanied by the mian
Anderson on Saturday night, was
found with a chain attached to it
t.hrown over a boom of logs at the wha'f
at Newell's mill, South Seattle.
A little after 2 o'clock the 17-year
old son of Iaaneher Gerald arrived at
the sheriff's oflice with a gold and a
silver Wat,eh, saying that Tracy had ar
rived at his father's house at 10:30
o'clock that morning, and after eating
a hearty meal had sent him to a neigh
hor's house wit h the two watches with
instructions to 1ry to sell them. Tracy
said if' lie "were given away'' lie would
kill the'whole family, the hoy included.
The ho;', knowing that it was Tracy,
conecluded to bring the watches to the
sherill's ollice, hoping that the des
perado would remain there until a
searching party could arrive. The
watches answer the description of
those stolen from the Johnsons.
Young Gerald dusribed Tracy ac
curat.ely, anid t,he oflicers think that lie
is tryiing to make the P.ahuer cut, off by
t,he Cedar mtountaim road.
The first poss0 t,ook a troley car for

was inl readliness to conyvey t,he man

hour later wvith bloodhloundls.

Since early this morning the pos
K has been scouring the country between
Renton and Black River Junction. A
large territory has been sontried, and
it is believed that Tracy is hiding in
-" the dense woods of this district. Guards
have been stationed at every road in
it the section. It is believed that lie will
soon make his appearance at some
house and demand food, as he Is know n
to be without supplies. The rumor
8 that Merrill has joined his murderous I
I comrade cannot be substantiated.
V No one knows the exact where
abouts of the desperado. A 'alem
penitentiary guard who is with the
party at Renton, is certain that Merrill
and Tracy are once more together.
Three suspicious looking individuals
have been captured at Renton. It is
thought that they may be three of the
four men who met Tracy at Black
River bridge Monday night and walked
through Renton in the convict's com
pany. At the jail they gave their
names as Andy Neilson, Tom Madden
and Phil Ritchie. The first two say
they are loggers and the third says he
is an iron bridge builder. Their state
ments are conflicting. A diligent
search is being made for the fourth
alleged accomplice, who is thought to
I i hanging around Renton or may
have joined the convict. Rumors are
rife that the fourth man is none other
than Merrill, but this is generally dis
SEA-r'rT.:, Wash., July 10.--Tracy,
the outlaw, has to all intents and pur.
poses disappeared from the face of the
earth. All that the authorities can do
is to wait until he enters another home
or holds some one up. Rumors of the
wildest description concerning the
convict's whereabouts are flying around
!n al! sides.
Public interest in the Renton es
capade show no sign of decreasing. In
the excitement following Tracy's flight
through one of the woods, one im
portant item was overlooked. IIe told
Miss May Baker at the Grennell's
home that his real name was Harry
Sevvge, and that Tracy was his crimi
nal nom de plume. Whether the mur
derer was speaking the truth is a mat
ter of speculation.
In connection with the Renton fiasco,
Trney's story is questioned by a large
number of people. Many incidents
support this theory. Anderson's state
ment concerning the murderer's four
friends whom he met after he landed e
in Seattle is conclusive. No doubt f
now remains that Tracy is receiving
With this outside help Tracy's en. :

explanable. He was not hungry. Noth- I
ing that he (lid or said at the house
could excuse his carelessness. In fact, r
tlio only thing he did excel.t talk to the a
women was to wash himself. a
Again, the fact that he sent a strange I
boy down town to sell the watches and i
buy revolvers, looks queer. In addi- I
tion to the watches, Tracy gave the 1
young man $9, every cent he had in i
his possession, and when he took his
departure the whole matter, boy and I

Are Cotton Mills ini a Coi
tuinity Of Heal Retnefit to
Mr. TL. Larry Gantt, of Inman, S.
C., wvrites as follows on this interest
ing subject to the Atlant,a Journal:
I have receivedl several letters from1
my old friends in Georgia asking me if
the building of a cotton mill in a com
imunity was really beneicial to neigh
boring farmers. I must reply to this
qluest,ion wit,h two directly opposing
answers :"Yes," "~ No."
Here aire the benefits that land own
ers andi ani agricultural class derive
from the estat>lishment of a cotton
factory in their midst: The prices of
surrounding land, for an area of some
t,hree or four miles, is considerably in
creased, its value being certainly
doubled, anti in some instance thrib
b)led and quadrupled. This is attrn
b)utable to the fact that a mill popula
tion are non-produceis of agricultural
p)roducts andi the farmer finds a neatly
market for not only every stick of wood
lie cuts, but all manner of vegetables
andi surplus crops, much of which
would otherwise go to wast,e. Again,
those mills furnish remunerat,ive em
Iployment to the families of many fan
mers. 1 know in Spartanburg County
of a number of land owners who be
came involved in diebt and being un
able to pay out with their cotton money
I rent,ed their farms, movedl their entire
family to a cot,t.on mill and were thius
able to save enough money to lift the
I mort,gages.
Anti just here let me state that w hile
I in some States antd sections cotton mill
r people are " looked diown upon," it is
- not so in this P'iedmuont section of
t Mouth Carolina. Many highly respect
I ed anti prominent families work in cot.
ton mills, and they hold their heads as
y high as any one. Taken ae a class,
a the cotton mill operat,ives of t,his see
S tinn in tdeportment, dress, moralit,y
~. and general bearing and character will
0 rank with t,he best agricultural or vil
lage communities.
e But the building of a cotton mill In
e an agricultural community has also Its
e drawbacks to a land owner, but these
e do not. overbalance their benefits. Ini
E-. the first place, a cotton mill naturally
[t creates a scarcity of labor on the farm
be andi tends to advance the wages of fIeld
w hands.
o Agalin, laborers within hearIng of a
n factory whistle during the long sum
e. mer days, insist on regulating their
,s work hours by the mill operatives,
which Is a serious loss to farmers at,
ie the husiest sason of the year. It is
also a mistake about these mills pay
ing farmiers a better price for their
cotton. On the other hand, I nc Lice
that the markets of Athens, l':Iberton
and other interior Georgia towns are
several points higher than our mills
pay for cotton delivered at their ware
But all things considered, it is un- r
deniably beneficial to any agricultural E
community to have a cotton Iimill estab
hshed in its midst. I know of more a
than one fa imer in this county, living n
near a mill, who, on Christmas, make t,
it a rule to invest every spare dollar
they save from the sale of cotton, and n
start the new year with empty purses. 8
They then sell, (luring the year enough d
wood, vegetablee, and other products o
from their farina to pay all expense for b
making the next crop. p
Spartanburg is one of the most pro- e'
gressive counties in the South. Our i
farmers produce about 60,000 bales of P
cotton a year and our local mills con- n
sume more than three times that nuni- ti
ber. We have now in this county about cc
30 cotton mills, and now ones are being
constantly built. I presume that four- s
fifths or more of the capital investd at
comes from the North. With the ex- 01
ception of one or two small factories, a
avery mill built in our county has n
proven a success, and a profitable in- L
vestment. The result is that when a 01
sew enterprise is projected, there is t,
ao trouble to raise all the outside to
imoney necessary to start it up. I
Without intending any reflection
ipon my agricultural friends in Geor- at
ia, I must assert that, as a general
hiiing, the farmers of this and other b<
apper counties in South Carolina are
omuewhat leading them in progress v
mnd enterprise. This is attribut,able gt
,o the fact that the land-holdings in nt
ieorgia are generally too large, and w
tour people must depend mainly on it
,he negro for labor. In Spartanburg i1
Jounty I can drive you for miles and
nibs over certain roads and where c
you find one man owning over one
yundred acres I will show you three or
our whose land holdings range from l
10 to 60 acres.
In comparison with middle Georgia, h
here are very few negroos in this w
ounty north of the Southern railway. aI
L'hose small farms are owned and
vorked exclusively by white people, fo
md it would surprise a Georgian to ar
ee how nicely a man supports his I
amily from a forty or fifty acre farm. 'L
It is a rare thing to see a field thrown pi
iut, and washes and gullies are disap- V
earing every year. Land is growing
oo valuable to let ii go to waste, and ye
n any desirable community a farm,
vitlh even the erut1est improvements, t
eadily sells for from $15 to $:30 per lal
cre. If there is an acre of land
round iniman that can be bought1 as 8lu
ow as ten dollars, I do not know where pa
t is. The land here too is naturally ou
in, similar to the soil in Gwinnett, an
lall and other Piedmont Georgia coun
And another noticeable fact is that thl
and owners here are generally clear all
>f debt, and make their farms self- th
ustaining. Like unto other sections, |ch
we have the poor always with us"; ap
)ut, as a general rule, our farmers are at
vell-to-do and prosperous. Many of ca
hem have a bank account or have no pr
,roublo to borrow money when they
ieed it. A leading merchant of this so
:ounty recently told me that he knew|di
he financial condition of every farmer |th
vithin eight miles of his store, and |m
vith the exception of a few young men
vho had not as yet finished paying form
heir farms, there was not a mortgage y
-ecordedl against, a single farmer. ci
There are not better or more intelli- (II
rent farmers in the South than Geor- i
gia can boast, but what your State s
nest needs to roach that high stage of i
levelopment she so richly merit,s is
~or your large land-owners to carve up
,heir plantations into small farms and(1
sell them off on easy terms to indus
nrons white men. Th'lis policy wvould A
greatly increase the value of the re- e
nining land, and add bot,h to the j
wealth and p)opulation of your State. o,
In Spartanburg County land readily ti
rents for one-thirdl of all tihe crops plro- A
cuced, andl desirable low grounds being A
one-half. I have several farms renmted n:
exclusively to white tenant,s, and (10 ci
not stand responseible even for the p,
guano that goes under the crops. My al
renters keep up terraces andl tihe lands l
improved, and they can buy all thep
supphles they ineed on their own ac- o
count. One of them, who runs a one- u
horse crop, has several hlundlred dbollars ci
loaned out, at miterest.
In my next letter I will tell The
.Journal readers how easy it is for any
town or community to secure a cotton
mill, if they will only go to work with ~

andl obiserver in nature, says the Chica
go T1rib)une, sooni learns t,hat the spider
remains iln the cenlter of the web that
it may feel the slightest, motion causedi
by any luckless inseet, which has beeni
caught in the sticky substance. Now,
if one will look closely at the spider he
will see that it hangs head downward.
One (lay, by suddenly frightening a
sp)ider, a mani learnedl the secret of its
constanit piosit,ion upiside dloWn in the
web. It ripped head down, and
Sto)ppedl when about half way to the
groundu, ando swung slowly to and fro
from the 01nd of a long thread of web.
I f it had been head up in the web it
would have been broken. After tihel
apier had swung at the end of its web
for some time it thought all danger
had passed, and turned and climbed up
again. It roiled the web thread up
wit,h its fore- legs and then threw it to
the ground. Tihis was evidently done
to keep it from becoming tangled with
any of the web proper, or with grass
or weeds nearby. Any one who has
touched a web knows that it is sticky
and hard to ravel when once tangled.
Certainly this bit of instinct is not ah
